Christmas : 8 tiny crochet pattern to make with your leftover scrap yarn

As I told you 2 weeks ago, Christmas hasn’t always been my thing. So this year, except for my crochet tree and my Santa amigurumi, I had no Christmas decoration at all. And when December knocked at my door, I hadn’t removed my Halloween decoration yet. 

Then, I remembered the little box.

You know ! The little box we all have, filled with leftover scrap yarn that we’ll use “one day”, “maybe”, “we could”…

That was perfect ! Christmas is only in 2 weeks, so I needed small projects anyway. Here are the 8 tiny patterns I used to complete my Christmas decoration with scrap yarn.

1. Hats

First, I made a bunch of small hats for every amigurumis of my desks : zombies, Jack, Sally, and even Voodoo Girl.

The pattern 

Pretty simple it is easily adaptable to the weight of yarn you’ll use  :

With red yarn :

  1. 6 single crochet in a magic ring (6)
  2. 1sc in each stitch (6)
  3. (1sc, inc)x3 (9)
  4. 1sc in each stitch (9)
  5. (2sc, inc)*3 (12)
  6. 1sc in each stitch (12)
  7. (3sc, inc)*3 (15)
  8. 1sc in each stitch (15)
  9. Go on until you’ve reached the diameter you need

Change to white with an invisible color change and make 2 more rows, without increases. 

2. Trees

Then, I made a small forest, using the exact same pattern as for the hat, with green yarn. I made each of them in a different size though. 

With white scrap yarn, I made a big circle that would serve as a snowy ground. 

3. Stars

Pattern : Little Things Blogged

I’ve just changed the l nose a bit, and sew the small antler on the inside rather than on the outside as in the pattern. 

8. Holly

  1. Love that you leave your Halloween things out! I leave mine out all year too! It’s not a holiday it’s a lifestyle. Now I plan to make hats for my Oogie and Jack. I have one question if you have the Sally pattern? She is the one I have yet to make. Thank you again for all you share yarn sister! Happy Hooking! Have

  2. Thank you so much. I have plenty of scrap yarn, & not a lot of time to make large projects. Your little patters will be great!

  3. Just downloaded the free book, I needed a light saber pattern (to make a ‘dipsy’ hat) but WOW thank you so much for the book, making unicorns as we speak ?
